From the collapse of Communism in 1989 to the present day; our times have seen a rapid and unprecedented shift from a world dominated by the uneasy stand off between two superpowers, to one threatened by the unpredictable menace of global terrorism, suicide bornbings and rogue states. Selected by the British Press Photographers Association from the work of its members, this collection does justice to the photography in a way that newspaper printing never can. It is also an opportunity for some of the best images, which may not have served the newspaper editors needs at the time, to be seen. From front page news to quirky picture stories, the collection encompasses everything from shattering global events such as September 11 to startling, surprising, humorous and beautiful pictures of the politics, sports, arts and entertainment of the period.
